PDTE Annual Conference & AGM 2021

25 - 26 September 2021

This year’s PDTE Annual Conference & AGM will be a hybrid event where you can choose if you want to join us online or in person in Norway.


Due to Covid-19 and the uncertainty if travelling is possible for everyone, we have decided to stream the entire event live online. 


However, for those of you who would like to (and are able) to travel, we have a limited number of 30 places available at the venue in Norway. It is the responsibility of the person travelling to make sure you can travel to and from Norway from your respective country.


Please note

There are no organized activities in Norway, but an opportunity to meet and socialize as much as the Covid-19 rules and regulations allow at the time of the event.
